Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
It depends on exactly what you're trying to do, but generally speaking the webcam is off until a program needs to use it. This model usually ships with Windows 7, so if you click on the Windows menu in the lower left hand corner and type "cam" in the search box, it will display a list of programs that match.
Most laptop models that come with a webcam will have some sort of webcam or video capture program that comes up with this search. You can also test the camera with programs like Skype, or by going to websites that allow direct uploading from webcams such as youtube (you will need a google account).
If none of this works, you may need to install a driver for your webcam. If you don't have a disc for it, and cannot find a download on the manufacturer's website, post the model and your version of windows so we can hopefully locate the driver for you.
If you're getting a specific error code when trying to use it, please post that also.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful.
